Who is a candidate for Total Hip Replacement?

Arthritis and severe hip injury may lead to highest pain or even inefficiency to walk. Doctors may recommend Total Hip Replacement Surgery for patients with severe hip problems. The hip replacement surgery becomes required when cartilage is badly damaged, smooth outer surface is lost and the bone is left unprotected due to the infection of the joint. As cartilage wears off patient suffers from highly intense pain and discomfort which margin the range of motion making it tough to walk, take stairs and perform normal jobs.


The most common irregularity leading to the hip replacement are:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Traumatic Arthritis
  • Avascular Necrosis

Hip replacement is seen as greatly effective orthopaedic solution to solve physical joint damage when physicio therapy or other non-surgical methods do not help you.

Total hip replacements are performed most commonly because of progressively worsening of severe arthritis in the hip joint. The most common type of arthritis leading to total hip replacement is degenerative arthritis (osteoarthritis) of the hip joint. This type of arthritis is generally seen with ageing, congenital abnormality of the hip joint, or prior trauma to the hip joint. Other conditions leading to total hip replacement include bony fractures of the hip joint, rheumatoid arthritis, and death (aseptic necrosis, or avascular necrosis) of the hip bone. Hip bone necrosis can be caused by fracture of the hip, drugs (such as prednisone and prednisolone), alcoholism, and systemic diseases (such as systemic lupus erythematosus).
